The first part of it sounds like an ingrown hair issue. I've had that exact same thing before. HOWEVER, I didn't end up with multiple bumps afterwards, so I'm not sure about that part.

No way to know its herpes or not without seeing a doctor. The good news is if it is herpes its not your fault it ended up there. Herpes can spread on its own through the nervous system and often come out different places. I've been infected on my penis but never had an outbreak there however I've had sores on my leg and butt which were not exposed to the other person what so ever. Don't feel bad even if it is herpes its not your fault for it spreading but try not to touch it until you find out whats going on frmo your doc.

      I had my first outbreak in June, very close to the date of your post. I healed up before the end of the month and it was about as many as you mentioned. I have gHSV1. The test was done on the left under the head of my penis because I had mostly healed by the time I made it to the doctor. There has been pain ever since in that one spot, but there hasn’t been any outbreaks. There are visible red spots that seem to linger forever. I’m a little concerned about this. Overall I’m lu it it is bite type 2 and I am doing my best to manage it. I hope you are doing well also since June. My wife and I (who I think I got it from) use condoms to prevent her from contracting it genitally. It’s a much more serious problem for women than men, as it can be internal for them and affect childbirth. Condoms are critical until a cure comes around, and there looks to be promising research. Hope you are well.

      I have been suffering from nerve pain after my first outbreak in June. Today I tried a charlotte’s web salve product and it took the pain away. I wouldn’t use it during an active outbreak though for risk of spreading it.

      Unfortunately that is the most common place men get infected!

      They are not the yardstick that you measure your worth with! It also tells you something about each and every one of them! To the ones you treated you well before I would personally talk to them and see if that was actually what he said to them? Maybe he said something different?

      I just disclosed to a man who works in the medical field and he didn't make a big deal at all. He shared his sti results w me I didn't see HSV1 on the test report, so I asked him about it and that opened up the discussion. The discussion of it was maybe 2 sentences tops. That was reassuring. We've since had sex and there was no hesitation or weirdness. So I recommend dating people w medical knowledge
